Agreed.  I also think that were this Jesus to return tomorrow his first order of business would be to go after the money men, the people who have bought and paid to make everything in this world to their liking; the lobbyists, the corporatists, the politicians etc who have farked us all over royally.

That's kind of how some of the SC questioning went...


http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/gay-marriage-case-justices-focus -tr ade-laughs-fertility-220612049--election.html


"The concern is that redefining marriage as a genderless institution will sever its abiding connection to its historic traditional procreative purposes, and it will refocus the purpose of marriage and the definition of marriage away from the raising of children and to the emotional needs and desires of adults," Cooper said.

Justice Elena Kagan, an appointee of President Barack Obama, pressed Cooper on that argument, asking him why then the government could not bar couples who are both over the age of 55 from marrying, on the assumption that they are infertile.

Cooper replied that it would violate the Constitution to ban older people from marrying.


That's right - the guy arguing that gays shouldn't be able to marry because they can't procreate believes it would be unconstitutional to ban older people from marrying due to their inability to procreate.

FizixJunkee: namegoeshere: Okay, Fark it. That's it. "Marriage" needs to be separate from a "Domestic Partnership Contract."

The state has no say in who marries, and marriage has no legal meaning. It is strictly a religious institution. Each religious institution can choose who can marry in their church.

"Domestic Partnership Contract" is what is issued by the state, and is a legally binding contract. As long as the partners are adults able to legally enter a contract, anyone can become Domestic Partners. No religious institution has any influence.

I've been arguing this exact point for years.


And you're wrong to do so. "Marriage" is already a civil partnership, regardless of what the religious nutters say. Changing the name to spare their tender feelings just shows that we lack the balls to stand up for what is right.

namegoeshere about the title of marriage versus civil union:

The reason a civil union or any such contract with another name won't work is that marriages have been tested and upheld as legal protections throughout Common Law in 49 of the 50 states, on the US Federal level, and even going back to our Common Law sources (the UK).

Only Louisiana is a Canon Law state (a remnant of the Napoleonic Code but also what you find in the majority of Europe). Canon Law doesn't bother with the Common Law approach to jurisprudence, so a new law can actually replace something and hold up in court.

Note also that it doesn't matter what marriage means to individual religions: we're talking about a civil contract with the same name.

For the rest of the USA and therefore on the Federal level, courts perform the legal tests that solidify (okay, encrust) legal precedence. Marriage has been tested a lot and never loses: a marriage in Arkansas or Alaska is legal in all the other states and nations of the world.

Nothing beats a marriage for inheriting legal privileges. When two people marry, the state rewards them as if they just had a late bar mitzvah. Discounts on insurance, priorities for mortgages, even coupons. THERE IS MONEY IN THAT DEAL! You put a ring on it and the whole world backs off.

If I die, my wife gets my crap before my mother would get anything. (She'd probably sell my vinyl collection wicked fast because she's scared of my turntable but I'd be dead and she'd need to pay the rent.) She gets no questions about visiting me in the hospital (before and even after I'm dead). We get a sweet, scha-weeet tax discount for being married -- from the IRS and from our state. I just need to stay alive... what's this bottle of poison doing here?

Civil unions are a new construct, and they keep failing legal tests. DOMA was created explicitly to dismiss Hawaiian civil unions as getting any Federal legal precedent.

Now, let me tie this together:
1) Homosexuality is not illegal in the United States. Thus the practices of homosexuals no longer make them criminals as they had until recently.
2) Thus homosexuals get equal protection under the law.
3) The Fourteenth Amendment does not allow for partial citizenship: each person gets equal protection under the law.
4) Previous legal tests for marriage restrictions BETWEEN CITIZENS have been dismissed. In particular, miscegenation laws are illegal and got tossed in all states as a recent of a 1965 Supreme Court decision.

The "well, we'd rather see kids have parents of different sexes" argument and "I think the ghey is icky and I found something in the Bible that backs up my opinion" argument fail these tests. Saying that a civil union would be sufficient makes it separate, therefore unequal. Only marriage will do.

No it doesn't. Not for everyone. Same sex couples can not legally marry in most of the country. The only onesopposing this are the religious fundamentalists. Their voice needs to be taken out of the equasion.


I retract what I said about good faith and due respect. Now, I think you're being disingenuous.

The situation you're proposing is that we separate the religious and legal institutions. Here's a quote from you:
My point was basically to separate the legal institution from the religious one, thus removing the religious argument from the equasion [sic].
As I pointed out,that situation currently exists. The legal institution - marriage - is separate from the religious institution - wedlock.

You've now responded by changing your argument, noting that gay people cannot legally marry. Although true, your new point has nothing do with  your previously proposed "solution" of separating the legal institution and the religious institution.

Your solution is really nothing more than a "we can't let gay people have access to marriage because they would sully the term, so I'll cleverly propose that we rename 'marriage' for everyone (but us good heterosexual folks will still have  real marriages)" troll.

namegoeshere: Fluorescent Testicle: namegoeshere: Why?

Many reasons, but the one I prefer is that you're giving in to the wants of the bigots; by backing off and simply changing the definitions to agree with them, you're letting them win. Besides, aside from the potential venue of the wedding, nothing about marriage is religious anyway. They can change their word for it if they so wish.

How is that letting them win? Many churches marry same sex couples. They will continue to do so. But being "married" in the religious sense, for gay or straight, would not enter you into the legal contract of what is now "marriage." That would be a separate, legally binding contract.


This is either intentionally disingenuous or woefully ignorant. In good faith and with all due respect, I assume it's the latter. Specifically, the situation you propose  already exists.
The religious institution is the noun "wedlock" or the verb "wed": religion  currently has the utmost discretion to wed whomever they wish or deny weddings to whomever they wish. Catholics won't wed divorced people. Orthodox Jews won't wed gentiles. Mormons won't wed non-Mormons.  Very few places will wed atheists.
The legal contract is called "marriage" and has the verb "marry". If you do not sign a state marriage license, you are not married, regardless of the ceremony you had. In fact, there's even a legal doctrine called a putative marriage, in which two people go to a church and have a wedding and  believe they are married... but, they actually aren't. The doctrine allows for  a few of the rights and privileges of marriage, due to their reasonable and unintentional mistake, but the law is quite clear: even putative spouses are not actually married.

So, essentially what you're proposing is that we redefine the term "marriage" to mean "wedlock" and create a new term "domestic partnership" to mean "marriage". And why should we do this? Why should we abandon the term marriage, when our parents, grandparents, great grandparents, etc. were all married? Because people like Pat Robertson are filled with hate and bigotry? That's quite possibly the  worst reason to ever do this.

Additionally, it would violate substantive due process. See Sweatt v. Painter.

I'm not super attached to the terms "marriage" vs "domestic partnership." If you have better ones, great. Bring them on. My point was basically to separate the legal institution from the religious one, thus removing the religious argument from the equasion.  You (we, people wanting marriage equality, whomever) are never, ever, ever in a million years going to convince the hardcore fundies that gay marriage is anything but sinful. And as much as I hate it, there are large chunks of the country where those who make the rules are all of that ilk. Separating the religious contract from the legal contract makes that irrelevant. The religious institutions who support marriage equality are free to marry whomever they want, and the fundies are free to keep on not doing that. But neither would have any say into who legally forms a family unit. That would be a separate, universally recognised contract.

See above. That separation already has been done, and is the law. And yet those hardcore fundies are still complaining. As you note, they'll never, ever, ever stop complaining, at least until all gay people are dead or locked up... so why should we give in by even an inch?

Yeah, geez, maybe they just want to be able to get Social Security benefits, inherit property as a spouse, and get on their spouse's employer's health care plan.  Or bring them into the country as your spouse for citizenship.

Many people still cite the "if you try to see them in the Emergency Room, you're not family and may get turned away"- which is bull, no hospital would do this nowadays, and even if they did because they had a homophobic family that hates you, well a simple legal doc could fix that.

But the other stuff- the real things here- can't be "fixed" by legal work.  You can't make up a contract to give your Social Security "survivor's benefit" to an unrecognized spouse, that's a "legal stranger" and you can't ask the govt to give someone money like that.

You can of course will them your assets, but there can be an estate tax since they're not a legal spouse, and that can be a real problem if the estate lacks liquid assets, e.g. a home with a high real estate value, or farm, but little cash.  If there's an estate tax it may be an inheritance you'd have to sell off and move because there's no cash for taxes on that.  Whereas legal spouses pay no tax on inheritance.

Actually, if you remove everything written by Paul (quite possibly the first gay homophobe) and everything that's widely understood to have been mistranslated, the Bible's either neutral on the subject or even pro-equality, depending on how you look at it. The Christians (the loudmothed Christians who just can't shut up about penis-goes-where, before anybody jumps on me for OMG BROAD BRUSH) just use it as a scapegoat; the vast majority have never read it, they just really really love to hate and/or are so deep in the closet they're buttfarking Mr Tumnus.


My usual response to my wingnut releatives is that they already chose to ignore parts of the bible already - why aren't they choosing to ignore a few throw away lines in two random books out of sixty-six?  They then go on blabbering about how they don't ignore anything, love Jesus, and eventually their head explodes.   By this time I've started by second beer.

Guess I have to dust this off from an old Yahoo post.  Here goes:

In 1747, Benjamin Franklin "knew" that heat was a colorless, odorless fluid.
Until dis-proven by Louis Pasteur, everyone "knew" that rats were spontaneously generated by rags on the floor.
Until dis-proven as quackery, Craniology was an accurate science everyone "knew" to be the best way to match someone's physical characteristics with their perfect profession.
In the 1950s, doctors "knew" that smoking posed no health threats.

And the Bible stories are 2000 years old? What did they "know" at the time?  It seems they "knew" Jesus turned water into wine, they "knew" angels could come down from heaven to talk to people, they "knew" plagues of locusts decimated their crops when God was angry, and they "knew" homosexuals were sinners and an abomination in the eyes of God.  So they also "knew" gay marriage was out of the question.

Imagine what we'll know tomorrow.

IMO, this has less to do with the "sanctity of marriage" and more to do with the business element.  Married couples get tax breaks and spouses can share insurance benefits.

Purple.

You see, long ago God made man in His Holy Image (and women too, ahem), and made them all the many colors of the rainbow. But the orange people, who had no Jersey Shore, wandered away to find better tanning salons, and the blue people went up into outer space, save one who mentored five teenagers to become Power Rangers and fight the evil Rita Repulsa. The green people slowly died off as they were mistaken for trees and cut down, and finally only the purple people, with mystical powers over the forces of the universe, remained. Thus we now await the coming of the Great Purple Leader, who shall bring us out of dark times into salvation.

Sure, they will protest "No! I don't want to get married!" But too bad, such is their fate.
